Fertility Acupuncture in Toronto

Did you know that 1 in 6 couples struggle with infertility and suboptimal fertility? If you’re seeking a natural and holistic approach to enhance your chances of conceiving, we’re here to support you on your journey to parenthood. 

At The Acupuncture Oasis, we offer a wide range of established and effective fertility acupuncture treatments, to help you and your partner on your fertility journey. Whether you need IVF support or want to increase your chances of natural conception, our treatments help Ontarians improve their reproductive health and build their families.

Starting Your Fertility Acupuncture Journey

Fertility acupuncture is a form of complementary therapy that has gained recognition for its potential to assist individuals in their journey toward conception. By targeting specific points on the body with thin needles, acupuncture aims to restore balance and promote optimal reproductive health. This gentle and non-invasive approach has shown promise in increasing fertility, aiding in conception, reducing rates of miscarriage, and enhancing the effectiveness of IVF and other fertility treatments.

At The Acupuncture Oasis, we begin every fertility journey with a personalised fertility consultation and assessment. On your first visit, you will meet with a registered acupuncturist who will gather information about your medical history, lifestyle, and specific fertility concerns before getting into the session. It’s our goal to get to the root cause of what may be contributing to your reproductive challenges and tailor your treatment accordingly.

This is your opportunity to openly discuss your concerns, ask questions, and gain a better understanding of how acupuncture can support your fertility journey. We want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible, and that you receive the best ongoing support and effective treatment. Schedule a session with our talented team of fertility acupuncture specialists today to get started.

How Fertility Acupuncture Treatments Can Help Women Conceive

Fertility acupuncture can support women’s reproductive health and IVF cycles by addressing various underlying imbalances that may be contributing to fertility challenges. Schedule a treatment to take advantage of the unique benefits of this holistic treatment.

Irregular menstrual cycles can contribute to lower female fertility. Acupuncture can help to regulate and support a balanced menstrual cycle, promoting more predictable ovulation and optimizing timing for conception.

Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine support consistent ovulation on days 13 to 15 of a regular cycle. This period is the optimal development time for an egg and thus the most ideal time for the egg to be released.

Acupuncture increases uterine and ovarian blood flow, enhancing the thickness and quality of the uterine lining, and decreasing the incidence of IVF failure and recurrent miscarriages. 

There is currently no medication that can increase blood flow to the uterus. However, acupuncture is believed to be one of the only interventions that have been shown to consistently increase uterine blood flow. Our experienced practitioners may also suggest herbal medicines as adjunctive therapy to support this effect.

Clinical studies suggest that acupuncture can positively influence the quality of the eggs released by the ovaries. This may be due to acupuncture increasing ovarian blood flow to the developing follicles or increasing the nutritional supply to the egg via the fluids that surround and nourish it.

Fertility acupuncture aims to improve the secretions and the elasticity of the fallopian tubes, facilitating the smooth passage of the fertilised egg into the uterus. This can help to facilitate a healthy pregnancy.

Acupuncture used during IVF can result in higher rates of viable pregnancy. Research suggests that IVF acupuncture may lower the risk of miscarriage, reduce tubal pregnancy and increase the live birth rate.

Balanced hormones are important for good reproductive health and to ensure the best chances of falling pregnant naturally or through IVF. Acupuncture can be used to influence hormonal secretion at the level of the pituitary, hypothalamus, thyroid, adrenals, or ovaries. Acupuncture can help to balance hormones and support a healthy and balanced hormonal state that allows pregnancy to occur and proceed naturally.

Stress is one of many factors that can negatively impact not just fertility, but also your overall health. Acupuncture treatments have been shown to help decrease stress during fertility treatments and can support a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

We know how fertility challenges can profoundly affect your mental health. A study conducted by the Harvard Mind Body Institute has shown that women experiencing infertility may have the same level of depression and anxiety as women with:

  • Metastatic Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • HIV positive

Fortunately, fertility acupuncture treatments have been shown to manage and regulate emotions and mental state by calming the nervous system, reducing stress levels, and improving overall emotional well-being and resilience. One of our registered acupuncturists will guide you through the entire process.

IVF Support and Success

Our skilled team will guide you through your IVF or FET cycle with confidence. We offer pre and post IVF transfer day acupuncture onsite at your fertility clinic (limited availability) or pre-booked at our clinic.

We understand that there are unique challenges to undergoing IVF, so we tailor your acupuncture treatments accordingly to ensure a comprehensive and integrative approach to your IVF journey. We can address the following:

  • Repeatedly unsuccessful IVF cycles
  • Implantation failure
  • Miscarriages and repeated pregnancy loss
  • Donor Egg Cycles
  • Frozen Embryo Transfer
  • Thin lining
  • Optimizing egg and sperm quality
  • Reduce the negative effects of IVF drugs
  • Balance hormones
  • Regulate immune system
  • Increased blood flow to ovaries and uterus
  • Improve implantation and uterine receptivity
  • Reduce negative effects of stress
  • Reduce inflammation

Fertility acupuncture can play a supportive role in improving the chances of IVF success by addressing various factors that can impact fertility and reproductive health. Our qualified acupuncturists specialise in fertility support.

Male Factor Support

The male factor accounts for 50% of the equation and the importance of sperm quality cannot be overstated. Male infertility can impact miscarriage rates, as well as the future health of the baby.

The male factor refers specifically to factors related to male fertility, including sperm quality, sperm count, and overall reproductive function. Since men are producing new sperm all the time, we have a significant opportunity to impact sperm quality at our fertility acupuncture clinic in Toronto.

Achieving Optimal Reproductive Health

To ensure the best chance of conception, be it naturally or via IVF, the male reproductive organs need to produce adequate quality sperm in the testes and have a clear path for sperm to travel through the seminal tract. This ensures that enough quality sperm is delivered to the waiting egg.

Low sperm count, poor sperm motility, poor sperm morphology (shape), anti-sperm antibodies, and low testosterone are all imbalances that may be addressed through acupuncture. This treatment is usually applied in combination with nutritional and herbal supplements at our Toronto fertility acupuncture clinic.

One of the most critical areas of influence is acupuncture’s ability to lower one’s perceived stress levels and regulate the nervous system, while cultivating emotional resilience for navigating daily life with greater ease. This, in turn, can result in improved fertility through better health.

Our treatments can help address the following factors, which may be impacting your likelihood of conception.

  • Low Sperm Count
  • Decreased Sperm Motility
  • Decreased Sperm Morphology
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Poor liquefaction
  • Decreased sperm motility
  • Varicocele
  • Prostate swelling
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Anxiety
  • Hopelessness
  • Depression
  • Stress management
